Berry Beautiful Burgundy Wedding Ideas

Rich and romantic burgundy is one of the most popular colors for wedding palettes. Brides gravitate to the intense jewel tone for its beauty, intensity, and versatility. It can work for any season; Spring through Winter. And, this color selection lends itself to any style wedding from edgy, industrial-chic wedding styles to earthy outdoor ceremonies. Since this hue provides a dramatic focal point for any and all of the details from florals to decor, we’ve rounded up some burgundy inspired options. You can set the tone for your wedding before it even happens by the style and color of your invitations. Give your guests a taste of wine (lol) with these amazing invites by Funky Olive.

One of the easiest ways to incorporate a signature color is, of course, with your bouquet. This one is a decadent composition of exotic florals and dried pods:

This bouquet is a lighter, sweeter side of burgundy since it is paired with paler shades of pink and soft roses:

And we love the drama of a wide bouquet balanced with light and dark colors and loads of greenery:

We think the shade pairs so beautifully with shades of green, pink, peach, and gold like this lavish, luscious tablescape.

The hint of burgundy on this three-tiered naked cake, paired with gold flakes and some pretty leaves sends a major style message:

A giant gilded frame embellished with swags of burgundy-forward florals makes a picture-perfect backdrop.

How lovely is an antique whitewashed mantel staged with an abundance of candles, baskets, and greenery? The few touches of burgundy deliver a punch of color and really pop against the other elements. Such a captivating moment at any outdoor wedding!

We’ve sourced the absolute most perfect burgundy shade of polish for you, Berry Naughty, from Essie. This luscious, deep berry lacquer provides the perfect pop of burgundy for your wedding day mani/pedi. Who wants this color at their next appointment? (We do!)

The best shade for lips, by Charlotte Tilbury, is Legendary Queena globally-gorgeous soft neutral wine shade in matte. You’ll be a beauty queen with this dazzling wedding day lip color:

The #KylieCosmetics Kyshadow pressed powder eye shadow in burgundy (extended palette) is your secret weapon to create the perfect wedding eye.

Another way to incorporate this signature shade is with your wedding shoes! How amazing are these berry-hued heels from Nordstrom? Extravagant laser-cut curlicues add a delicate, feminine look to these scene-stealing sandals.

A bountiful burgundy headpiece is another sure-fire way to bring your color story front and center:

Having your guy in a burgundy tux is also a super awesome idea. Combining your favorite person with your fave color makes all kinds of sense! “Hello world, I love this man. And I love burgundy!”

Adding in some burgundy artwork and furnishings to your reception space can up your wow factor style-wise, plus you can use it to furnish your new house together after the wedding day:

Having a signature cocktail in your vibrant, saturated hue is an entertaining way to reiterate your color palette. This one is the right shade, but you might want to rename it something other than Fearless Redneck:

However you choose to use your color, we know your wedding day is going to be amazing.


Emma and Andrew’s Very Special Vintage Inspired Wedding

 

Emma and Andrew vowed to love each other forever on an early spring day in a billowy, romantic white tent on her family’s property surrounded by 220 guests. Their warm reception was held in their lovely, rustic barn. Their day was incredible due to the efforts of her team of wedding pros, and also her wonderful friends & family. And, of course, because of the beautiful love that she and Andrew share. But one reason the event was so special was that it was filled with so many personal touches from Emma’s heart. Luckily Erin Morrison Photography was on hand to artfully capture all the details.

You see, beautiful bride Emma spent a long time, years in fact, planning and preparing for her amazing and colorful vintage-inspired wedding. Long before she met Andrew, back in her high school days, she dreamed of what her wedding would be like so often Emma got herself a notebook to keep track of all of her favorite ideas. The book was stuffed with flowers, cakes, decor dresses and anything else that captured her fancy. Emma, who has a love of all things vintage, also spent lots of her free time scouring auctions, flea markets and estate sales with her mother to find things that caught her eye. In her college years, she became an avid collector, amassing vases, tissue paper bells, bridal baskets, handkerchiefs and linens in earnest. The best part? Emma ended up having the wedding of her dreams and using those ideas and items she collected through the years. Her joyous wedding turned out perfectly, as she put it, “colorful, mismatched and a little kitsch.” But decor and details were just part of the equation, as Emma says, “In the end, the day is about marrying the love you’ve waited for and sharing the day with all of your favorite people.”

Some of Emma’s favorite folks are a group of her mom’s friends, known as the Ya-Ya’s. These fun-loving, party-planning, stand-in moms all played a part in the festivities. They were all over the wedding helping with cleaning, organizing, bringing over more “junk” to decorate with, setting up, and even catering. She recalls their reception happily, “It was beautiful and exactly what I had imagined. All of my favorite things—mismatched china and milk glass, vintage head vases, old linen tablecloths, a ceiling filled with tissue paper bells, Victorian screen doors re-purposed into chalkboards, old quilts on the ladders that belonged to Andrew’s granddad, and breakfast for dinner prepared and served by the Ya-Ya’s.” And all those bridal baskets she so lovingly collected ended up providing a major style statement hung in a happy profusion on the barn wall, filled with baby’s breath from LB Floral.

Lesley at LB Floral played a key role in setting the stage for the wedding. Prior to the wedding, she met with Emma and her mother to plan the floral elements. She even took a look through Emma’s wedding notebook for inspiration. She was able to incorporate so many of Emma’s ideas and her favorite flowers (daffodils, tulips, and hyacinths) beautifully. Lesley made an astonishingly amazing arch that included some of the collected tissue paper bells. Isn’t it fabulous?

Our favorite floral element though has to be the bountiful bouquet bursting with color that LB Floral made for the bride.

Emma’s habit of accumulating antique hankies paid off too. She used them as creative gift wrapping for the wedding favors. Emma put out local honey as well as apple butter, jam, and peanut butter spread that were all homemade by her friends. And, Emma used a wrought iron tea cart she found at an antique show in Ohio to display those yummy gifts.

Emma always felt she should wear something 50’s inspired on her wedding day. She actually purchased a tea-length dress with vintage vibes in Europe but decided it wasn’t quite what she wanted a few months before her special day.  She and her mother visited The Gilded Gown where they found her dream dress; a gorgeous full-length gown composed of all-over lace with three quarter length sleeves and a beautiful train. (The bridesmaids found similar style dresses in all different colors from various sources.)

She added in her retro flair by wearing a bouffant veil and kitten heels, both found on Amazon.

Ramble Creek Cakes made the adorable white wedding cake which was artistically decorated to look like hobnail milk glass. Emma used a whimsical vintage vase that belonged to Andrew’s grandmom as the topper.

We are blown away by the amazing paper backdrop that graced one corner of the barn.

Every nook and cranny of their wedding was graced with happy vignettes, like this antique bike with its’ basket full of flowers and a sweet sign propped beside it proclaiming, “Just Married.”

Emma and Andrew created a wedding filled with love, laughter, family, and friends. The fact that Emma incorporated her passion for vintage treasures just made the whole event even more enjoyable for all who were in attendance. And now they can live happily ever after.

TREND ALERT: Living Walls & Living Bars for Your Wedding

Love all things green? Are plants your fave? Then we think you’ll love the wedding trend of using the beauty of nature to elevate your special day to the next level. Incorporating lots of lush greenery, beautiful plants, gorgeous blooms and all things living into your wedding decor is probably the way you want to go. After all, Aristotle wasn’t wrong when he said, “In all things of nature there is something of the marvelous.” And using these live elements in go-big-or-go-home ways will make a huge impact on your guests. Everyone is used to experiencing the beauty of bouquets, bouts, and table arrangements at events, but they will be blown away if you face an entire bar or wall (or BOTH!) with greenery.

Embrace this trend by making your wedding reception cocktail bar look like it is an organic living work of art. Your guests will be transported to the wilds of nature as they step up for their refreshing drink. They’ll also want to take lots of photos in front of your showpiece, especially if you make one that combines both a living bar AND a lavish, gorgeous live wall:

Or, you can stage a live bar in an outdoor setting for a double-dose of natural beauty. We adore the matching pair of shelves that flank this spectacular three-dimensional greenery-fronted bar.

Even a small touch of living vines provides a beautifully understated buffet front.

Another way to use greenery to transform your wedding bar is to cover the front in boxwood and suspend lots of adorable, affordable carnations overhead. And, a pair of matching floral swags add an extravagant feel to the bar top.

You can even make your bar an organic statement piece with formerly live elements such as dried florals and greenery, like this incredible one that we are in love with:

Photo by Heather Waraksa; Florals by Saipua; Venue by 99 Scott

You can use the beauty of living things to create an amazing backdrop to get married in front of, to use for a photo backdrop, to decorate your reception space, or all three! For a rustic, forest wedding we are feeling this pallet wood wall stuffed with plants of all varieties.

For a romantic feel, you might consider an ombre mass of roses in shades of pink fading into a show of cheerful yellow and white daisies offset by a rich moss underlay.

This extra tall wall of grass is dotted with pretty flowers and provides the perfect backdrop for a ceremony. The majestic scale and natural elements play well against the urban feel of the distressed brick. And, hello two little chandeliers!

There is something just so glamorous about an artistic mass of plants, isn’t there? There is plenty of style going on without a single bloom in sight.

A collection of tropical leaves brings an exotic jungle feel to an indoor space. The use of concrete blocks and metallic candleholders adds a modern flair to the display. Amazing how natural elements can transform a room, you feel a sense of the outdoors even with the absence windows.

Whatever kind of wedding you’re envisioning, we hope you will incorporate a huge dose of something living and green. You will be giving yourself and your loved ones the gift of a beautiful, natural, inspiring and memorable wedding.

It’s not easy being green. Kermit the Frog

 

Easy-Going and Affordable Backyard Weddings

There is something so intimate, loveable and laidback about backyard wedding ceremonies. Hosting a wedding in your very own backyard exudes such a personalized, cozy, homey spirit. After all, having your loved ones over to share in your wedding at your own space, as opposed to any other venue, is incredibly personal and meaningful. Your home is where your heart is, so it makes sense to marry there.

Backyard weddings are low-key, low-stress and easy on the wallet. And we think folks who go this route are pretty cool. It is an unexpected choice and one with endless options. You can go fairly glam and rent everything you need from an event rental source from chairs, lighting, decor, dishes, and glasses to an entire dance floor. OR you can take the easy-going approach and borrow a bunch of mismatched chairs and china and DIY the heck out of your event. It’s YOUR house, so everything can be just the way you want it.

Hosting your own wedding gives you the chance do things your way, without having to follow a venue’s specific rules and regulations. Want a candlelit ceremony? No problem! Look how amazingly romantic tea light candles in recycled glass jars look strung from tree branches.

Want your pet(s) included in your wedding? In your own back yard, they are most certainly allowed! Ruffled Blog featured Julia and Brian’s adorable at-home wedding photoed below. “Bride Julia knew she wanted the focal design point of her wedding day to be an oversized banner backdrop, so she set to work making it herself — and we love what she had to say about the end result: “It’s perfectly imperfect — just like our wedding.” Scarlet O’NeillLaura Olsen Events, and Leaf and Bloom brought everything together so beautifully!

Any yard can work with just a little bit of prep. A few rows of wooden chairs and some paper lanterns are all you need to transform even the most basic backyard into a wedding wonderland. Two dramatic urns with lush florals are an easy way to provide the perfect focal point to exchange your vows at.

You can create such special moments in your yard, like this amazing swing embellished with string lights, throw pillows and an artful swag of fabric.

Lawn games lend themselves to this type of wedding. They provide entertainment for your guests and encourage them to interact with each other instead of their phones. Plus you can keep all the fun games for future parties.

Personalized corn hole sets are awesome! We sourced a set (similar to the ones below) on Amazon for less than $140 here.

And who doesn’t enjoy a game of Jenga? Especially GIANT Jenga.

An extra large four in a row is super fun.

There are so many ways to handle food and drinks at your event. You can make your own, have everyone bring a covered dish, hire a caterer or even bring in a food truck or two.

Self-service buffet tables are a nice option:

Mason jars with fun striped straws are a cute addition to this drink station.


Things to consider if you are planning a backyard wedding:

Local Ordinances

First, check with your local authorities about noise, curfew, parking, lighting or permit regulations that may be applicable. If regulations are in place, be sure to abide by those rules. Also, check to see if your neighborhood maintains any of its own regulations about parties. If so, be sure to contact the HOA president for approval beforehand.

Parking

If you don’t have enough room, arrange to have your guests park somewhere close by. Have a friend drive guests to your house from there.

Bathrooms

Not enough plumbing for your number of guests? Consider renting some porta potties. They have some fairly nice options these days.

Neighbors

The best way to avoid irritating your neighbors is to invite them.

Clean-Up

Definitely hire help to clean up afterward. It’s your wedding day and you’ve done enough. If you need to save cash, ask friends and family to help out. Many hands make light work.


 

How fun is it to style your own wedding, your way, at your own home? TheZebra.com provided some awesome inspiration boards with loads of great ideas for different backyard wedding styles:

One of the best parts of getting hitched at home? The happy memories of your wedding day will fill your home for as long as you live there.

CAKE BREAK: Inspiring Summer Wedding Cakes

Choosing your wedding cake flavor and design has to be one of the MOST fun parts of wedding planning. When else do you have the opportunity to taste endless flavor combinations of cake (guilt-free)? And no matter what your style is whether romantic, hip, classic, mod, rustic or glam, the type of cake you decide to serve can communicate your style your guests. Whether you want something simple and classic or unexpected and bold, your wedding cake can be the perfect finishing touch to your wedding theme. For your summertime event, we suggest incorporating the signature flavors of the season to tie everything together. Citrus, berry and other fruit options are a perfect bite of summer and deliver major sunshine vibes. As far as stylish warm-weather hues go, white, sun-washed pastels and neutral confections work well. As do bright pops of color and fresh floral elements, like this cheerful, bursting with brightness cake from Martha Stewart Weddings:

Looking for something a little more understated? This white-on-white Lemon Elderflower flavored cake is absolutely stunning and well-suited to an elegant summertime affair.

You can’t go wrong with any type of tropical themed cake for a summer wedding, especially if you are having an oceanfront or poolside soiree. This pretty yet whimsical cake has loads of island personality with a Monsterra leaf, tropical floral elements, a watery blue layer, and adorable starfish toppers on a bed of “sand.”

We love the delicate, soft pastel pinks and florals in this three-layer cake. Just the right finishing touch for a romantic warm-weather garden wedding.

Nothing says summer like fresh, bright citrus fruit. We love the cascading slices of lemon, lime, grapefruit, and oranges on this simple four-tiered white cake. Oh, and that pineapple top is the cutest “floral” embelishment.

For a beachside ceremony we love the idea of this watercolor, ombre, ruffled cake topped appropriately with whitewashed coral:

If you are having a difficult time narrowing down flavors, check out these summer wedding cake ideas from Zola for some inspiration. From fresh and bright to rich and dramatic, these beautiful wedding cakes have a flavor and style for every couple. Add in seasonal fruits or nuts and delight guests with a sweet treat at the end of the night. Play with different toppings and garnishes to create a true work of art.

It’s hard to go wrong with any kind of cake, so enjoy taste testing with your fiance and create the perfect wedding cake flavor and style wise for your big day!

And, if you are not into serving a traditional cake at your wedding…

…here are some awesome summery cake alternatives you might like:

A POPSICLE cart!!!! How perfect on a hot summery day is a refreshing and fun popsicle? We suggest Artistic Pops for their yummy

all-natural, creatively flavored, handcrafted pops made in the smoky mountains:

Mississippi mud pie! Best served with ice cream, this chocolate dessert pie is perfect for a hot summer day.

Rainbow sherbet dessert! Macarons, pecans, and layers of rainbow sherbert make this cake alternative colorful and refreshing.
